Gluten Free Prescribing Restrictions

At its January 2014 Board meeting, the Mid Essex CCG agreed restriction prescribing policies for infant milks and gluten free foods.  The final policies can be viewed on their public website. It was agreed that existing patients would be given notice of the change when they next submit their repeat prescription request, with the effect that patients/parents will have at least one month’s notice of the change.  The policies will apply to new patients/parents with immediate effect.  Patients/parents can be go to the public CCG website to view the policies, and can raise any concerns through PALS.
